another moment

so i went to get some groceries today and they had the flowers out front for sale. i am not one to really pursue the confinement of flowers, but clearly others are. so i thought…. what must the world be like to be a person who really desires to own flowers, to grow them…. is that world experience different than mine, where i prefer to find flowers and witness them as part of the landscape. i realize that for me to take my pleasure, i need others to take their pleasure… that i find reassuring. it is a fact about the world that i take pleasure.
